Bears’ Quarterback Cutler Has Broken Thumb, Coach Smith Says

Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler broke the thumb on his throwing hand in yesterday’s win over the San Diego Chargers, coach Lovie Smith said.

Smith, in an interview with WBBM Radio in Chicago this morning, didn’t give a timetable for Cutler’s return, according to the National Football League team’s website.

“Jay does have a right-thumb fracture,” Smith said. “We took X-rays last night and he’ll be seeing a specialist this morning and we’ll be able to tell you a little bit more after that.”

Cutler may miss the final six games of the regular season due to the injury, which was sustained when he tried to tackle Chargers cornerback Antoine Cason after a fourth-quarter interception, ESPN reported, citing unidentified people familiar with the situation.

Cutler, 28, threw two touchdown passes and ran for a score in Chicago’s 31-20 win over the Chargers. It was the fifth straight win for the Bears, who are 7-3 on the season.

Caleb Hanie would take over as the starter in Cutler’s absence, ESPN reported. Hanie replaced Cutler in last season’s National Football Conference championship game, when the Bears lost to the Green Bay Packers.
